Joe Hogan

Ireland

Prompted by his own desire to develop a deeper connection to the natural world and reawaken a sense of wonder, basketmaker Joe Hogan’s work has evolved from traditional forms to crafted sculptural objects. He represents the generation that created in a traditional way for use and now creates crafted objects as art. But is the relevance in his sculptural objects their relationship with his earlier functional work? Today, Joe Hogan’s practice allows him the opportunity to live rurally and to be involved in the entire process, from growing the material to making the finished object. His home and landscape have had a profound influence on the style and diversity of his work, encouraging him to explore and develop new designs based on old traditions.
